Playing in the powder with the 1985 Honda 250SX. Sadly, after 27 years, this may have been my last ride. After a few spins around the yard throwing up snow, the rear axle housing gave way with about a 6" crack. The crack occurred in the same place it had been welded back in the late 80s (after an initial crack from riding too hard), but I don't think there is any saving it this time. Whoever repaired it with a weld the first time did a great job because it lasted over 20 years with a lot of hard riding. I knew it wouldn't last forever, though.
